An Evansville school has been listed among the top 10 in Newsweek's 2010 rankings of America's Best High Schools. Signature School is seventh on the list. It was created in 2002 as the state's first charter high school. Several schools throughout Indiana are included in this year's rankings.
The Signature School is public, with open admission. But there has been a lottery for incoming freshmen over the past two years because there have been more applicants than openings.
The school is comprised of three downtown buildings.
Newsweek ranks high schools each year based on how hard students are challenged. Only 6 percent of the public schools throughout the country have made the list.
